A central processing unit (CPU) is the electronic circuitry within a computer that carries out the instructions of a computer program by performing the basic arithmetic, logical, control and input/output (I/O) operations specified by the instructions.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) system provides a reference-method for publicly known information-security vulnerabilities and exposures.
The Cyrix coma bug is a design flaw in Cyrix 6x86, 6x86L, and early 6x86MX processors that allows a non-privileged program to hang the computer.

The Eindhoven University of Technology is a university of technology located in Eindhoven, Netherlands.
Exception handling is the process of responding to the occurrence, during computation, of exceptions – anomalous or exceptional conditions requiring special processing – often changing the normal flow of program execution.
In computing, a file system (or filesystem) is used to control how data is stored and retrieved.

In computer engineering, Halt and Catch Fire, known by the assembly mnemonic HCF, is a euphemism referring to a computer machine code instruction that causes the computer's central processing unit (CPU) to cease meaningful operation, typically requiring a restart of the computer.
In mathematics and computing, hexadecimal (also base, or hex) is a positional numeral system with a radix, or base, of 16.

Portable Document Format (PDF) is a file format used to present documents in a manner independent of application software, hardware and operating systems.
In computer architecture, a processor register is a small amount of storage available as part of a digital processor, such as a central processing unit (CPU).
In computer science, hierarchical protection domains, often called protection rings, are mechanisms to protect data and functionality from faults (by improving fault tolerance) and malicious behaviour (by providing computer security).
